Aletheia Church began in August 2014 in the Jennings' home with Bible study and relationship building with those living in Sedona. As the Bible study grew, Josh sensed the need to begin finding another location to begin worship services. Aletheia had her first worship service in October 2014 at the Sedona Teen Center located on Posse Ground Road. The church had two more preview services, one in November and one in December. On January 18, 2015 Aletheia Church launched weekly services meeting each Sunday at 9am at the Sedona Teen Center. Aletheia celebrated its first baptism in May of 2015 where two adults publicly professed their faith in Jesus Christ. In the summer of 2015, Aletheia was outgrowing the kids area of the Teen Center, so the church began praying about where the next location of Aletheia would be. The Lord opened the door for Aletheia to rent facilities from another local church, and on August 30, 2015, Aletheia moved locations and began worshiping at Crestview Community Church. In 2020, Aletheia Church adopted Crestview Community Church and the congregations began serving our Lord TOGETHER as Aletheia Church! The Lord is doing amazing things at Aletheia and we invite you to join us as we seek to give every man, woman, and child in Sedona repeated opportunities to Come to Christ, Grow in Christ, and Go for Christ.
Sedona, Arizona is located on the border of Coconino and Yavapai counties in the upper Verde Valley of Northern Arizona. With an elevation of 4,500 ft it offers mild winters and hot summers. It is most known for its large red sandstone formations known as the Red Rocks of Sedona. It really is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
While the population is only around 19,000 (including nearby Village of Oak Creek), Sedona plays host to tourists numbering up to 4 million people each year. This provides a unique context to both enjoy the small town life and have exposure to many cultures from around the world. Thus, Sedona has well-established music and art communities who host numerous festivals each year.
Spiritually speaking our town is very eclectic. A small percentage of the population professes to be evangelical Christ followers; while most people prefer to develop their own spiritual ideas by mixing what they determine to be the best of what the world's religions have to offer. This reasoning gives rise to much of the New Age philosophy that is promoted here.
